A Teacher's Greatest Lesson,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson (Hörkassette)
Tuesday's with Morrie was a wonderful book. Mitch Albom, the author, describes his hectic life as a sports writer, jet setting around the world, but missing something. When Mitch accidentally sees his former teacher and mentor from college on Night Line with Ted Koppel, Mitch is curious and contacts him. Unfortunately, Morrie is dying from ALS and as their relationship grows, so does the ravages of this disease. Each Tuesday, Morrie and Mitch have a session where some of life's simplest ideas are discussed. Morrie maps out suggestions for living that are so simple and uncomplicated that Mitch and the reader cannot help but pay attention to such good advice. Some of Morrie's advice comes from tough experiences such as the death of his Mother when he was only eight years old. Morrie tells of never really getting over this tragedy and it was mostly because his father would not discuss it. Sadly, the telegram announcing his mother's death in a hospital is his only momento of her. Morrie decides to make his dying as untraumatic as is possible. He has plenty of time to say good-bye to loved ones and Mitch is included in this special group. Of course, this story cannot have a happy ending because this disease is incureable, yet Mitch is content in the end to go to Morrie's grave and talk while Morrie listens. As Morrie said those you love in this life are always with you in your memories. Professor Morrie Schwartz was a truly remarkable man and the sense of humor he kept through out his terrible suffering and humiliations he endured as his body shrunk to nothing is something I will always remember. Morrie Schwartz was the ultimate teacher and his life was the lesson we all should follow. This book tells you through out to stop and smell the roses. Talk to your friends and family as if you may not see them ever again after today. Love each other and don't let petty problems get in the way of any relationship that means something to you. We never know how many tomorrows we have left. Morrie Schwartz with his books, hibiscus plant and love for mankind was a great guy to know through this book. Mitch Albom did a great job and I recommend this book to anyone because we all share in the lessons Morrie had to teach.
